Charity information


Driven by the inspirational international voice coach, Michelle Wegwart, Magdala continues to grow from its origins in 1989. Magdala provides opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to discover their creative potential through the power of singing and opera. Most of all, Magdala offers the opportunity to be part of something very special; it raises the aspirations of people in the region, enabling them to realise their potential through experiences which are life enhancing, life changing and life affirming.

Over the past nineteen years, Magdala has firmly established itself as an organisation that delivers three equally important strands of activity. These are accessible singing training for local people, concerts in community venues given by the Magdala Chorus and Opera Start outreach projects for disadvantaged children in local schools.
